A portable tank library — because YOU WILL read that book (10 Photos) » portable-tank-library-Argentina-0

This car-turned-library, made in Argentina, is a sight for sore eyes. Artist Raul Lemesoff took an old 1979 Ford Falcon, a popular mode of transport amongst the military forces of its time, and transformed it into a mobile library shaped like a tank. His portable project titled Arma De Instruccion Masiva, translated as Weapon of Mass Instruction, roams the streets of Buenos Aires, attacking its people with knowledge -- get it? At any given time the tank is loaded with over 900 books, and is as Lemesoff says a "contribution to peace through literature."
